edinburgh....ed-in-bu-ra...me?? 100000000% shy...

me and my partner...well, im sure u can guess who he is...hehe...

on saturday, we talked for about 4 hrs...

i told him that one of my friend had their engagement photoshoot in Edinburgh...and his reaction was:

me: edinburgh (i pronounced it edinb-u-r-k...)
him: ????
me: edinb-u-r-k...
him: oooooo u mean edinburgh (he pronounced it ed-in-bu-ra...)
me: ooooo (red face) ed-in-bu-ra (with lower volume possible..)
him: ed-in-bu-ra....hehehe say it...ed-in-bu-ra...(with devilish laugh...) now is your turn to learn...

we ended up laughing...but me?? OMG....padan muka..why??

before this, i used to laugh when he pronounce kuala lumpur, sabah, kota kinabalu, manukan, borneo, etc...coz its sounds funny when he pronounced it...and i have to say it slowly ko-ta ki-na-ba-lu...but he said kkooo-ttaaaa kkkiii-nnaa-bbaaa-lu (he pronounced the lu faster than the rest)...

it sounds funny, i can laugh...

but now....i pronounced the word wrongly...and his turn to laugh at me...ahahhahaha

well...to be positive, i dont think im the one on earth pronounce edinburgh, ed-in-bu-rk...im pretty sure there are others out there pronounced it like me...but since, he taught me how to pronounce it in Scots way then im happy that im right...hehe

to be negative, OMG...im still shy...damn shy....totally shy...

* a lesson to be taken by me: do not laugh at people who cant pronounced a word perfectly....tgk apa jd dgn sy, padan muka...lol
